THE PEACEFUL RISE OF CHINA MAY BE ENDED BY THE RESURRECTION OF IMPERIAL JAPAN WITH WESTERN SUPPORT ... as per the original script of British diplomat par excellence, Ernest Satow, who engineered the rise of the Meiji restoration.
The world is vastly different, yet fundamentally the same, as when Japan was armed by Western powers to serve as their proxy in fighting off the Russians, and then, in subduing a behemoth of a China. The amazing thing is, it nearly succeeded, were it not for Japan's own ambitions that derailed the plans of its western creators.
Now, mentor and student are back on good terms with each other.
The weapons, tactics and strategies are different. But the geopolitical goals remain unchanged. And the use of corruption to weaken its enemies, like China and Taiwan, remain as powerful, if not more so, in the 21st century world of finance and banking. The lesson of the First Sino-Japanese War is that China was defeated by the corruption of its highest officials, taking bribes from the Japanese, and sending its elite troops to their destruction by crippling their supplies and support lines. The lesson of the Second Sino-Japanese War is that unity, even in the face of technological backwardness, kept the Japanese wehrmacht at bay, until Japan was attacked by the Allied forces with atomic bombs forcing it to surrender. The lesson of the Third Sino-Japanese War is that unity with technological innovations can not only defeat a powerful hostile coalition, it can regain lost sovereign territories, as a bonus.
The peaceful rise of China may be ended by a resurrected irridentist Japan, but the further rise of China through armed conflict with Japan may have just begun. Remember, Genghis Khan -- how war was forced on him by the Sultan of the Khwarezm empire -- and how his victory led to the birth of one of the greatest empires of all times.
